Publisher Comments:

The six most highly-acclaimed short works of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist

 

Collected here for the first time in a deluxe paperback volume are six of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbecks most widely read and beloved short novels—Tortilla Flat, The Red Pony, Of Mice and Men, The Moon Is Down, Cannery Row and The Pearl. From Steinbecks tale of commitment, loneliness, and hope in Of Mice and Men, to his tough yet charming portrait of people on the margins of Monterey society in Cannery Row, to The Pearls mythic examination of the fallacy of the American dream, Steinbeck created stories that were realistic, rugged, and imbued with energy and resilience.

 

For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Synopsis:

To celebrate the centennial of his birth, the collected plays of Americas greatest twentieth-century dramatist in a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition

 

In the history of postwar American art and politics, Arthur Miller casts a long shadow as a playwright of stunning range and power whose works held up a mirror to America and its shifting values. The Penguin Arthur Miller celebrates Millers creative and intellectual legacy by bringing together the breadth of his plays, which span the decades from the 1930s to the new millennium. From his quiet debut, The Man Who Had All the Luck, and All My Sons, the follow-up that established him as a major talent, to career hallmarks like The Crucible and Death of a Salesman, and later works like Mr. Peters Connections and Resurrection Blues, the range and courage of Millers moral and artistic vision are here on full display.

Including seventeen plays—some known by all and others that will come as discoveries to many readers—The Penguin Arthur Miller is a collectible treasure for fans of Millers drama and an indispensable resource for students of the theatre.
